Today's SIG Alert!
Day 25 – John 16.24, 26-27: Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive and your joy will be complete. In that day you will ask in my name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. No, the Father himself loves you. Jude 20-21: Pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love.
